Apple TV 2

Hi Lead Audio,

As I want to buy a DAC, I've been looking at the DAC market and came across your product. I haven't had the opportunity to try it, so my question is if you have any experience or recommendations about using it with the Apple TV 2.

Thanks in advance

Hi Poul
It works very well with Apple TV. You just use the optical input on the DAC.

Re: Apple TV 2


I have an LA-200 (wonderful product) and indeed used this with a direct optical connection to and Apple TV 2. Works fine... except for leased films. It looks (hears) like the sound is encoded on those.

To fix this I used the optical output from my TV set, and there it's fine.

Already encountered this issue ?

Re: Apple TV 2

Interesting observation. Haven't tried it, but i can think of 2 reasons. One is that the optical outputs is encoded in dolby surround, with leased films. The other thing i can think of is that the sound is encrypted, and then it has to go through the HDMI on the TV.
